Quit Your Job for a Better One? Not if You Live in Idaho

July 16, 2017View for printing

Idaho achieved a notable distinction last year: It became one of the hardest places in America for someone to quit a job for a better one.

The state did this by making it easier for companies to enforce noncompete agreements, which prevent employees from leaving their company for a competitor.

While its economy is known for agriculture -- potatoes are among the state's biggest exports -- Idaho has a long history as a technology hub. And the new law landed in the middle of the tech world, causing a clash between hungry start-ups looking to poach employees and more established companies that want to lock their people in place.
